Structure diagram
This model type contains one object type structural
element and one connection type contains. Since a
structural element can be assigned to all model types, this
model has a wide range of uses. It is often used as a start
model for various views of a company.
Process landscape
A process landscape is used to structure the process
portfolio of a company. Processes in a process landscape
can be connected in a sequence to describe an end-to-
end scenario or a value chain. Processes can be arranged
hierarchically to further refine certain process areas. The
process portfolio is usually structured into the following
three process types:
1. management processes (e.g. strategy),
2. core processes (i.e. value-adding processes),
3. support processes (e.g. marketing).
	 This symbol represents a process that can be 	
described, e.g. by using a “Process landscape”
diagram.

Event-driven process chain
(EPC)
The event-driven process is a set of related tasks or
activities performed to produce a product or service.
The event-driven process consists of events triggering
activities. Rules control the flow of the process. The
event-driven process describes
1.	 which activities are performed in the course of a
process,
2.	 which organizational units participate in process
execution (persons, groups of persons),
3.	what input and output data are used,
4.	what IT systems are involved, and
5.	 which events and risks occur during process execution.
	 An event describes a state that controls or
influences the progression of the process. They
trigger functions and are the results of functions.
	 The system is a software system that is used to
support the execution of a function.
	 A function is a task or activity performed to deliver
process outputs and support business objectives.
	 A risk represents the possible danger of a defined
process objective not being achieved.
	 The symbol role illustrates who is performing an
activity.
	A document carrier stores knowledge/data.
Connectors are used to split and join the control flow.
Split connectors have one incoming and several outgoing
connections. Vice versa for join connectors.
OR considers at least one path.
AND considers all paths.
XOR (exclusive or) considers exactly one path.

BPMN process
BPMN is a process notation used to model business
and workflow processes alike. BPMN is a open standard
for process modeling maintained by OMG. The BPMN
collaboration diagram is used to model the interactions
between participants, e.g. in a business-2-business (B2B)
context. Participants are involved in the process and
represented by means of pools. Interactions between
these pools are represented by message flows (message
exchanges).
	 Start events may use different symbols in BPMN.
For example, "Message event" for processes starting
with a message.
	 These symbols mark the end of a process.
	 Gateways represent decisions within the process
flow. Using the corresponding symbol, they
represent parallel, exclusive, or other execution
modes.
	 Intermediate events affect the process flow. They
do not start or end the process.
	In BPMN, tasks are represented by activities. They
cover the human ("User task" or "Manual task") or
technical execution of tasks. As "Subprocesses" they
represent basic processes.
	 Text annotations are used to add comments to
model elements.
These represent organizational units. Using pools or
embedded lanes tasks can be assigned to persons or
groups of persons.

tiny.cc/BPMN-cheat-sheet
System landscape
System landscapes describe which IT systems belong to
which logical units (domains). This assignment information
is relevant for budgeting or for defining administrative
responsibilities.
	 Systems represent logical electronic data
processing systems. These systems are not
hardware but software systems. ERP systems and
EAI platforms can be named as examples.
	IT systems can be grouped into areas (application
domains). In doing so, the question of similarity
can be defined according to different classification
criteria.
Data model
A data model represents the data view of a company,
e.g. which business objects exist. The entity relationship
notation is used for data modeling. Data models are created
e.g. to define database structures. The cardinalities of
relationships between entities illustrate the number of
interconnections.
	An entity is an individually
identifiable object of reality.
In databases, it is
represented as a table.
Attributes describe
properties of a data object
(entity), i.e. the columns of
a table.
	The primary key (here:
purchase
order number) is a unique
identifier for an object.
	The foreign key is a
reference to the primarykey
of another data object. For
example, the customer ID is a
reference to a data object of
the "Customer" type.

Organizational charts
Organizations and companies illustrate their structures
with organizational charts. With the ARIS symbolism
(organizational unit, role and person) relationships
between individual units like departments or
employees are demonstrated. The relationships stand
for
1. Who is responsible for whom?
2. Who is the supervisor or inferior?
3. How are the communication channels?
	 Organizational unit is a unit in an organizational
hierarchy. It can be used to show which
organizational units are superior to others.
	 Position is the smallest organizational unit in a
company.
	 Persons can be assigned to an organizational
unit.
Groups of persons can be combined in a role.
A location refers to a physical place and can be
a factory, a building, or also an office.
